We had a nice late dinner, a few beers and fun with the jukebox. The service was friendly and fast and the hamburger very good.

This old style diner offers a good variety of favorites with generous portions and friendly staff it is a great way to start the day or grab a meal for lunch or dinner. Prices are average but the food is well worth it.

Travelled from Perth, Australia Dec '13. Ate here a few times with family. Fantastic atmosphere, food and service was excellent. Historic photos and memorabilia made the experience more enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit!

We came here as an escape from our pretentious overpriced hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The food is great, tasty and lots of it. Most of the time (except when really busy) the service is very attentive. They never let your coffee run dry. This is American dining at its best
